Chasing Summits: A Musical Ascension will be a seven part series; one episode for each of the seven summits Håkon scales.
Each episode will feature the preparation for the climb, the unique challenges faced and difficulties encountered along the way, and will end with the concert performed as he reaches the summit. But we will also learn more about Håkon himself, including the backstory that led him from being an out-of-shape non-stop-partying traveling musician to the determined and dedicated Jazzathlete who pushes both his body and mind to break records and perform concerts in places that nobody has before dared.
The local populace, culture and nature surrounding each summit will play a vital role in the compositions, and we’ll follow Håkon as he meets and performs with fellow musicians on each continent.
Equal parts travelogue, extreme-sports documentary, first-person narrative, and musical, Chasing Summits: A Musical Ascension is a series that will be as dramatically compelling as it is a beautiful and wondrous feast for the eyes and ears.
